We made a day-trip to the Gamboa Rainforest Resort to get away from the noise of Panama City for a bit, and had drinks and a light meal at the restaurant. It was worth it for the views, but we found the service a bit slow and spotty, and the fare quite expensive. The bar has a decent selection of... More

We had a spectacular time at the most Beautiful Resort ! Our room had the most magnificent view ! Very peaceful & relaxing. From the moment you arrive you're transported to Paradise on Earth ! You can take a bus into the city for only $.65 cents . Taxis can cost about $70.00 for a round trip fare .. Can't... More

First, our visit was not with a group, which seemed other than the norm; many groups. The grounds are lush and fun for birders to explore. The pool is enormous. We were there with an all-inclusive package. The rooms were large and comfortable with good sized bathrooms, I liked having a dehumidifier. So that every room has a view, there... More

We stayed 3 nights and loved the resort. The birding was spectacular and the rooms were comfortable and views from the room perfect for seeing lots of birds. The walks around the property were wonderful including the orchid garden, the frog aquarium, the butterfly garden and we even saw the howler monkeys. We walked the pipeline road and it was... More

The Gamboa Rainforest Resort boasts a spectacular natural setting that mostly compensates for some annoying, if minor, deficiencies in the hotel itself. But not completely. Located in the heart of a national forest, the resort offers its guests a variety of nature-related activities, including boat trips, naturalist lectures, and tours. As a hotel, it provides large rooms that include a... More

This resort is stunning in both location and layout. Service is mixed, some nice helpful people and some sour faced folks who seem to want to be anywhere else. There is nothing close by so you either need to drive out or use the hotels amenities exclusively. The main restaurant is very mediocre either buffet or al la carte. The... More

About the last thing you would expect to find in the Panamanian rain forest is a first class hotel. The Gamboa Rainforest Resort is a terrific property providing all of the amenities and services you would expect in a cosmopolitan hotel. The food, service and facilities are top notch and the surrounding property is worth the trip if the hotel... More

Spent one night here in May prior to a day spent Peacock Bass fishing. Had a great time. Rersort is large and quite fancy considering its rainforest location. Rooms were nice with outstanding views. Staff was helpful and knew what they were doing. Food and drink, while pricey, were good. I would return.
